Father’s Day or Dad’s Birthday Card

Father's Day Card

Father's Day Card

A bit early for father’s day cards I know but I am still playing with my new stamps

Stamp Sets: Autumn Flair (hostess gift), Greetings Eight (both from the new catalogue)

Card Stock: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango (2009 in colour range), Whisper White

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, versamark

Accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, pastels, sponge daubers, SNAIL adhesive

Before I did my scrapbook page I practised on a strip and I quite liked the strip so I cut some Pacific Point card to size and attached the strip. (see below for how I made the strip with versamark, pastels and ink)

I then stamped in Pacific Point the Dad stamp from Greetings Eight and attached using stampin’ dimensionals.

New Catalogue

The new catalogue is here and I have been playing with some stamps and colours from my pre-order.

Stampin’ Up!s 2009/2010 Idea Book and Catalogue will be online from 12pm Tuesday April 1st and you can purchase a copy through me on or after that date.

Autumn Travels

Autumn Tra

Stamp Set: Autumn Flair ( a level 2 hostess gift)

Card: Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss (from the new “in color” range), Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

Ink: Tangerine Tango, riding hood red (“in color”), versamark

Pastels: Chocolate chip

Accessories: Flower Designer Brads (from the new catalogue), anywhere glue, SNAIL adhesive, sponge daubers, Crop-a-dile

I cut the tangerine tango card to 6×6 scrapbook page and stamped a border down the left hand side.  I started with the versamark with the flower shapes and I daubed over two of them with the chocolate chip pastel and left the other two as watermarks.  I then stamped the lighter images with tangerine tango and then two step stamped with riding hood red over the top.

I cut the chocolate chip to create a border on the right hand side and  the kiwi kiss to create a bit of lighter colour to the look.  I then layered the cards and photo.

I then stamped the flower image again on whisper white card stock in tangerine tango and riding hood red.  I attached them through using the Crop-a-dile to punch a hole through the flowers and card stock and I used a brad from the flower set from the new catalogue.

I am not sure my scanner accurately reflects the colours – chocolate chip being much darker.  The new colours in the catalogue are gorgeous!

Anniversary Card

Star Card

Star Card

Card Stock: Whisper White

Paper: May Special (but you can use any)

Ink: Basic Black

Accessories:  stampin dimensionals, anywhere glue

Stamp Set: Fun and Fast Notes

This is the same idea as the bowl of flowers I posted earlier.  I masked out the Congratulations with tape when I inked the star (removing the tape before stamping).  I stamped the star onto different colours of the stampin’ up paper and cut out the different stars and flowers and layered it to produce a 3D look.

Christmas Place Holders

Christmas Place Holders

Christmas Place Holders 2

Christmas Place Holders 2

To decorate the Christmas table *last year now* I bought some red and gold wrapping paper.

I got out my “Whisper White” stamp pad and my “So Swirly” stamping wheel and rolled out a pattern on the red wrapping paper.

I then rolled the red and gold together into a cone shape and we filled it with red and gold chocolate hearts and red and gold Christmas baubles and voila – one for each place at the table.
